Yaskawa has integrated Powerlink in their DX200 robot controller, making itpossible to seamlessly incorporate Motoman robots into machine automation systems. For machine manufacturers, this advancement considerably simplifies the programming of robots.

“We not only created an interface to Powerlink,” explains Bruno Schnekenburger,head of the robotics division at Yaskawa Europe. “With Motoman Sync, we also offerthe possibility of programming robots in a familiar IEC 61131 environment.” Ad-vantages include drastically reduced commissioning times and better clock accuracy.

Integration in a Powerlink network results in additional benefits such as in-creased productivity. In addition, machines or plants can be designed more flexibly.A separate operator terminal for robots is not needed since all data required for operation and diagnostics can be displayed and modified on the machine’s main terminal. The DX200 is a high-performance robot controller for Yaskawa Motoman robots. It enables synchronous control of up to eight robots or 72 axes and is equipped with a built-in safety controller in accordance with PL d / Cat 3 for up to 32 user-de-fined safety areas and up to 16 different tools. Integrating Powerlink into the DX200robot controller now allows Yaskawa Motoman robots to be seamlessly incorporat-ed in machine automation systems

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
